We are pleased to unveil the 2015 edition of the Rouleur Awards, which recognises the best performers from the past season of professional road racing.
The winners will be chosen from our shortlist by a panel of judges. It comprises some of the most respected former riders in cycling, including Sean Kelly, Stuart O'Grady, David Millar and Erik Dekker.
Each will provide a first choice in each category, as well as a second and third place in case a count back is required. In early November, we will be publishing the winners on Rouleur.cc. We will be celebrating the winners at the Rouleur Classic (November 19-21).
Over the next few weeks, we’ll also be asking for your opinions on the 2015 racing season, with some great prizes available.
